departure of general david petraeus from the cia tells us more about the state of our nation than a dozen petraeus. president barack obama should not have accepted his resignation. we seem to care more about the sex lives of our leaders down their real lives of our soldiers. i want to pick that apart one piece at a time. he suggests that his resignation says more about the nation about him? what do you mean? >> it worries me that we can throw away the leaders so casually. general petraeus is one of the more prominent generals of our time. the only general the american public has really been known since world war ii. a lot of generals tried and failed in iraq. petraeus succeeded. here we have a leader who has done well. something happened between him and another person, a private consenting adults, nothing illegal, and we throw him out. i do not think we can afford to do that. we did not use to do that. dwight eisenhower carried on with his chauffeur, a very good- looking red-haired british woman. he was not fired. ike, you gotta go home, you had an affair. that would be crazy. that is kin

president obama from nominating u.s. ambassador rice from becoming the next secretary of state. >> she has says this was not a pre-planned attack, why was that done? >> reporter: for weeks, the republicans have expressed their anger with rice, urging her to explain the appearances regarding the video and the protest over benghazi. >> this is in response to a hateful video. >> i have grave concerns. answers from ambassador rice before i could support her for any position. >> this president and this administration has either been guilty of colossal incompetent acts or engaged in a cover-up, neither of which are acceptable to the american people. >> reporter: also today, mueller and joyce briefed the top commanders on the scandal involving petraeus. the acting cia director, morrell, was also here for private meetings the big expectation tonight is that petraeus himself will come forward to testify about the benghazi attack, not his own troubles, as early as tomorrow or friday. now there are some differences among republicans about what is the best way to get to the bottom of what happened in

's nearly impossible to believe that president obama didn't know. oh, and dimension the state department was watching this unfold in real time? when president obama in his absurd press conference then tried to portray himself as coming to the defense of a damsel in distress, susan rice, saying, quote, republicans should come after me. at that moment, he stumbled into a deeper and more damaging truth than he realized because republicans are rightly going after you, mr. president, because the evidence is mounting that you and your administration knowingly and willfully misled the american benghazi massacre and lying to the american people, perhaps in order to get re-elected. that's a serious offense. joining me with reaction, texas congressman mike conoway, in the closed-door meeting with general petraeus and the author of a brand-new book, a host of war stories. oliver north is here. bring us inside the room. what happened today? >> general petraeus came to clarify some of the statements he made in the september 14 briefing. first, let me make sure we acknowledge the heroic activities of
from a belly? people from 19 states have filed petitions from america. on the obama administration's we the people website. and some are close to getting the 25,000 signatures needed to require an administration response with texas a mere 600 short as of monday afternoon. it is particularly feasible for texas to withdraw from the union and to do so would protect the citizen standard of living and resecure their rights in accordance with the beliefs of our founding fathers that are no longer reflected by the federal government. so what do pandas make out of all of this? >> they don't know anything. they are stupid pandas. what do you make of this? some states can do this. some states can't. >> i think texas can pull it off. they are in a grown upstate. i think louisiana was a close second. they would be more like the high school kid that ran away from home and spend all of their money on booze and hung out with mississippi, got in trouble and they lived in texas for a little while until we took them back. >> you know, it is an interesting point. the idea creates an experiment in which yo

case and the election case, but 30 republican governors, they are vital to creating a state run exchanges. the obama administration can't just ignore republican ideas, they have to have a conversation about ways to fix the obamacare legislation or reform it so it actually will work. right now it is slated not to work and be a bigger mess. cheryl: 2014 is not very far away. the states are not prepared with these exchanges. what are you hearing? >> i am hearing that. one of the reasons is the obama administration was waiting until after the election to go forward with the regulations telling states how to go forward. politico has a piece talking about how there will be the regulations not only affecting the states and how they run their exchanges but also affecting businesses and specifically the insurers and how they can prepare products that will be salable, so waiting on the regulations of a political purpose will not help getting the law implemented in a clear and clean way. cheryl: want to ask about the issue of medical device makers and that new tax coming, that hit a lot of
, gifts to minorities were not the reason that president obama won the white state of new hampshire, the largely white state of iowa. it's not why he won the hometown of paul ryan, janesville, wisconsin. so there's just a factual issue. but third and biggest, and this is where you heard the louisiana governor, bobby jindal, installed yesterday as the chairman of the republican governors association. this is where you heard him coming in, that republicans say this is a just-doesn't-get-it moment for romney. it makes republicans think that the 47% comment was no slip of the tongue. at his press conference in las vegas yesterday, governor jindal, our reporter, says became visibly agitated about this and said these comments were absolutely wrong. and they come at a time when almost every other leading republican figure is saying the party really needs to look inside itself and change karl rove. in "the wall street journal" today, it's saying the republican party needs to reverse engineer what the obama campaign did in its turnout efforts. senator john cornyn of texas, the head of the se
